A business partner and I visited on a visit to Carlisle and were very pleasently surprised at the service and excellent food. I had Nasi Gorang and can say it was one of the best I've had. My colleague had the Jungle Curry, this was again really tasty. I would thouroughly recommend Royal Outpost.

The service was friendly, the food was delicious, the prices were moderate and the atmosphere was comfortable. It is upstairs but don't walk by without trying it out.

Based on some of the reviews I'd read on here; my wife and I decided to give this place a try. We both love Asian food and regular eat Indian, Thai and Chinese. Royal outpost, however, is a cut above the rest. Fantastic, fresh tasting and flavourful dishes, not over salted or greasy, as is often found in some other... More

We would recommend the Royal Outpost to anyone looking for a beautiful Thai meal. I cannot eat any foods containing gluten or dairy, the staff offered exceptional help with this. Amazing service and amazing food. We could tell it was all made from scratch and tasted very authentic. Will definitely visit again!!!

Service also great, it was a quiet Sunday night, think expect a longer wait on a Fri/Sat but... More

Went here last night for the first time. Having been to Thailand a few times I'm always quite critical when I go anywhere that serves Thai food. I have to say, this did not disappoint. I can't wait to go back. Had chicken pad Thai and chicken massaman with a Mai Tai cocktail. Never had a Mai Tai that tasted... More
